Hey guys, Huron here, welcome to another Tuesday Time Capsule!
I have a short one for you today. Below are some Old School Eldar minis that I found in the Time Capsule case. Many of them are from 2nd and 3rd edition. Back then Eldar Guardians did not always use Shurken Catapults like they do today. In fact to you had to pay extra for the catapults, they instead came with las-rifles.
The original plastic guardians, of which all of the weaponless guardians above are from came with a plastic lasgun bit. However when 3rd Edition rolled around and GW decided to remove las-guns from the eldar list and make them all use Shurken Catapults, GW repackaged the plastic guys with metal Catapult bitz. If you look closely you can also see a Warlock with Las-pistol, a plastic jetbike pilot, one of the original swooping hawk models, and on the far right the original Dire Avenger Exarch.
That is it for this week, see you next week for more Tuesday Time Capsule.
